Happy Sunday, my loves!

Last week Nestlé sent me a baking kit with the full range of Nestlé Baker's Choice goodies. As I was thinking of what to whip up as a Saturday morning treat, I just couldn't go past the current doughnut craze sweeping Sydney! 

I love my doughnuts and I love my  chocolate. Put the two together? Oh, yes.

I used up a whole 290g bag of White Chocolate Melts (with a dash of vegetable oil to thin it out for dunking), then played around with pink food colouring gel to get this watercolour effect ;) The Chocolate Melts were really easy to work with, and because they're specially designed to set hard without refrigeration, it didn't take me long to jazz up these doughnuts. Topped them with silver cachous (before the chocolate glaze hardened, to make sure they stuck on), a sprinkle of edible pearl dust, and ta-da! 

Can't wait to experiment with other colour themes. Next bridal shower/baby shower, I'm bringing doughnuts! 

If you guys give these a go, tag me in your photos so we can be watercolour doughnut buddies! I'd love to see what you come up with. Top tips would be to add food colouring to your melted chocolate a tiny tiny TINY bit at a time, especially if you're going for a light pastel colour theme. You can always add more, but once you've swirled it in it's really difficult to get out! 
Oh, and wear an apron. I forgot mine and uhh.. it was not pretty.

Have a lovely week, everyone! Will check in soon.

P.S. Thank you Nestlé for the chocolate supply! #BakeItYours
